Unknown Location Candid Recordings - 1965

Band recordings (from the TooleMan  march 2014)

1.01 Album Art (5.41) - 1.02 Customs Stop (4.00)

In view of the current flood of Yes and Jon Anderson interviews, I thought it was time to share these two bits of tape that a friend sent me last year. These recordings were apparently made by someone in the first incarnation of Yes in 1969. In one, you can hear the band members discussing album art, and in the other the tape was rolling as members of the band went through customs in a car or van.Though Jon Anderson's voice is fairly obvious, you'll have to guess who the other members are. At the time, Yes consisted of Jon, Chris Squire, Peter Banks, Tony Kaye, and Bill Bruford
